Presenting The Vacheron Constantin Double Axis Armillary Tourbillon Replica

Last year Vacheron Constantin Mens Replica took the crown from Patek Philippe when it unveiled the Reference 57260 “Tivoli”, a pocket replica watch with 57 complications, making it the most complicated replica watch ever. Now two complications from the Reference 57260 – named after its 57 complications and the brand’s 260th anniversary – make their debut in a wristreplica watch, inside the Maître Cabinotier retrograde armillary tourbillon.

Maître Cabinotier is Vacheron Constantin’s department dedicated to custom made timepieces like last year’s Perpetual Calendar Regulator or the Astronomica from the year before. Such replica watches are typically unique creations, not just aesthetically but also technically, with one-off movements. The Maître Cabinotier retrograde armillary tourbillon is one such replica watch. The key feature of this custom timepiece is the armillary tourbillon that rotates on two axes (the tourbillon inside the Reference 57260 was even more complicated and rotated on triple axes) – made up of two carriages milled from lightweight aluminium that together form a Maltese cross for a brief instance every 15 seconds. One plane of rotation for the tourbillon is parallel to the dial of the swiss watches replica online, and the other turns like a rotisserie on a plane perpendicular to the dial, while the hairspring is spherical – a set-up similar to that of the Jaeger-LeCoultre Reverso Tribute Gyrotourbillon. A sapphire bubble on the front and porthole on the side reveals the tourbillon as it moves.

In addition to the exotic tourbillon, the escapement has a novel form that is patented. Its key features are a silicon escape wheel and pallet fork, with pallet stones made of hardwearing synthetic diamond. The silicon pallet fork is formed with tiny springs integrated into the slots for the pallet stones, allowing for precise adjustment of its position.

The time is indicated by a pair of retrograde hands on the right half of the dial – the left half is dedicated to the armillary tourbillon – with the retrograde mechanism exposed, showing off the intricate levers, gears and springs that underpin the flyback display.

The movement is hand-wound, and decorated by hand to the standards of the Geneva Seal. Unusually it has been given a dark grey coating, instead of the bright silver rhodium plating common for high-end movements. And the case is white gold, a hefty 45.7 mm in diameter and 20.6 mm high.

Introducing The New, Sporty And Playful Vacheron Constantin Quai de l’Ile Replica Watch

When I first laid eyes on the original Vacheron Constantin Quai de l’Ile replica watch, when it was first introduced in 2007, I didn’t exactly know how to position it. This watch, or better these watches, were a tad more sporty / casual than the average classic dress watch, and also a bit more chic than the average sports watch. The unique mix-n-match case options offered customers to choose from various materials – red gold, titanium, steel – to create their ultimate personalised combination.

The case of the latter and casual Vacheron Constantin Quai de l’Ile replica watch is still a mix of titanium and 18K pink gold. The two calendar models are entire executed in 18k pink gold. And now there are two newest Vacheron Constantin Quai de l’Ile replica watches, in stainless steel, one with a white dial, and the other with a black dial.

The luxury and masculine Vacheron Constantin Mens replica watch features such a beautifully balanced mix-n-match style of modernity and vintage style elements. The sculptured case, with alternating polished and satin-brushed finishes, is also an absolute feast for the eye, and doesn’t bore easily.

Its size (41 x 11.75 mm) dictates that the interesting Vacheron Constantin Quai de l’Ile replica watch actually doesn not qualify as a proper classic dress watch. Same goes for the looks, as there’s a bit too much going on on the dial and also the case is less understated than the case of a classic dress watch. The Vacheron Constantin Quai de l’Ile replica watch certainly would make a great combo with jeans and a polo shirt, or even jeans and jacket.
